Minimal Downtime, Dramatic Results!
Ever wish you could pick and choose where you want lose weight? You can with SmartLipo! If diet and exercise just aren’t working, SmartLipo can sculpt and shape the body you want.
SmartLipo is a minimally invasive, non-surgical body contouring procedure that permanently removes fat in targeted problem areas.
SmartLipo reveals beautiful curves and areas you want to accentuate. For some, muscle was hiding under layers of fat that was melted away by SmartLipo.
Dr. Kwak has earned a reputation for quality aesthetic cosmetic surgery and outstanding results. He has an artistry for creating natural-looking, dramatic enhancements for the body, face and breasts. He has performed thousands of aesthetic and body contouring procedures for patients in the Philadelphia region and beyond since opening his Bryn Mawr office in 2005. Dr. Kwak was one of the original users of the SmartLipo technology when it was first invented.
Dr. Kwak received medical training at Thomas Jefferson University and the University of Pennsylvania, where he received specialized training in minimally invasive surgery. While serving as faculty at Penn, he founded its first endovenous laser ablation program. As an early developer of laser and ultrasound assistance devices for cosmetic surgery, he simultaneously co-served on the Penn Center for Human Appearance with the Departments of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology.
If you have excess fat around your midsection, you may be a good candidate for Lipo 360°, also known as circumferential liposuction. 360-degree liposuction includes the abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), and lower back areas for a more comprehensive procedure that contours every angle of the midsection. Dr. Kwak creates a customized plan, so your results are natural-looking and optimally balanced with your entire body.
Our patients often comment that their liposuction procedure is a great value when they learn about our all-inclusive pricing and the extensive post-operative follow-up care we provide. In addition, we offer flexible terms and manageable monthly payments to fit any budget. Learn more about what’s included and see why a SmartLipo procedure is worth the cost.

SmartLipo is not a solution for weight loss but is intended for removing stubborn deposits of excess fat and sculpting the body you want.
While both traditional liposuction and SmartLipo effectively remove fat, there are key differences between the two procedures.
|Technique||Uses a cannula (tube) and physical manipulation to suction fat from beneath the skin.||Uses a very small cannula and laser light to melt the fat and deliver heat to the surrounding tissue. This results an easier recovery.|
|Anesthesia||General anesthesia||Local anesthesia – Patients are awake during the procedure.|
|Skin Tightening||None||Yes, the laser heat during the SmartLipo procedure stimulates the growth of collagen, which continues to tighten the skin.|
|Recovery||Requires a longer recovery time, sometimes significant pain, and the use of compression garments for up to 3 months.||Most SmartLipo patients are back to work in 3-4 days, and typically only need compression garments for 1-4 weeks.|
|Scarring||Significant||Scarring is less likely with SmartLipo since the entry incisions are very small, less than ¼ of an inch, and do not require any stitches.|
Patients are up and walking around as soon as possible after their SmartLipo procedure. A compression garment needs to be worn for 1-4 weeks on the treated body area to reduce swelling and help your skin properly adhere to its new body contour. You may experience some bruising, swelling and mild discomfort, which can be controlled with Tylenol or prescribed pain medications. Most of our patients return to work within 3-4 days.
You can expect to see results immediately following your SmartLipo procedure. Your results will continue to improve over the coming weeks as your body heals. Over time, your skin continues to tighten, and optimal results are usually seen within three months.
You can expect follow-up at every step of the way after your procedure. Dr. Kwak and his caring staff ensure you have the materials and instructions you need before you leave the office. Several appointments will be scheduled to ensure your proper care, up to a year after your procedure.
